The zoo in Chapultepec Park is free to all visitors and gets extremely crowded on weekends. That said, the park is well organized, clean and has a great selection of animals (including pandas!). It takes couple of hours to experience the zoo at a leisurely pace. Great stop during your visit to Mexico, especially if you have young children.

We decided we would see as many attractions as we could within the Chapultepec park. We walked along the pathways and unassumingly walked into the zoo located within the park grounds. We spent nearly three hours there with the intent of only stopping in to take a quick peek. I do not love the idea of zoo's however my husband... More

It is located in a very convinient place, near the Chapultepec castle, so you can easily combine both in a day. Also it is a very nice motive for younger children to visit first the castle and then the zoo

Chapultepec zoo has a wide variety of animal life and it has been operational for decades. Without a doubt it is a great site for an all day family outing. One of the best things about Chapultepec zoo is that Chapultepec itself is not just a zoo but an immense city park with a wide and fun variety of activities... More

This zoo is free, but it's super depressing. The cages are really small and all of the animals look miserable. Something to do if you're bored or if you're really into zoos, but otherwise it's better to check out zoos in other parts of Mexico.

I have been to many a great zoo and as far as interaction with animals for free this one is tops. The attractions are a little bit run down but they don't skimp on the animals. So many and so vibrant. Always active and not lazy like most American zoos. And even thought this park is free to get into... More
